In his cultural historic research Steven Connor looks at air as an object of science and material of art. With this Connor approaches a term coined by German philosopher Peter Sloterdijk: foam.
With Anglo-Saxon straightforwardness and perspective Connor examines the airy concept of foam, space and bubbles - the concept of Frothiness.
